If you haven't seen it yet, you're missing out.
Forget the "Born This Way" comparisons - the song is one of the year's biggest hits and what the video lacks in storyline it more than makes up with the stunning visuals.
Katy is the first female artist in over a decade to score more than two #1 singles from one album. With the song hitting #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Katy's total tally of #1 hits rises up to five and Kanyé's to four. "Teenage Dream" also becomes the ninth album EVER to spawn four US #1 hit records.
The music video is directed by filmmaker Floria Sigismondi who has created clips for David Bowie, Björk, and Marilyn Manson and who most recently directed the critically acclaimed film The Runaways.
“E.T.” is the fourth single off Katy’s Grammy-nominated album Teenage Dream to top the Billboard Hot 100 charts. The album, which has been nominated for Album of the Year Grammy, Best International Album Brit Award and just won a Juno for Best International Album, boasts the previous three singles, “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” and “Firework” which all peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making Katy the first female artist in 11 years to score three No. 1 singles from one album.
